Ender’s Game

17 Jun

I love to read science fiction and I recently ran across “Ender’s Game” by Orson Scott Card.  This book has been around for a while and I’m not sure how it managed to escape me – but it did.  I read the synopsis of the book and said, hell, why not – let’s give it a read.

And I’m so glad that I did.  The quick and dirty version is that after Earth had two wars with a lifeform they call ‘buggers’, the powers that be are looking for someone to command the Earth forces in an attack on the bugger’s homeworld… and the person they think will fill the job perfectly is a six-year-old genius, who is a special third child in a society where only two children are allowed.  In fact, Ender’s brother and sister are geniuses in their own right but while they failed to be selected, Ender was – and his life would change forever.

I can see why this book won so many coveted awards; it’s stunning and even shocking and kinda reminds me of the movie “Soldier” (starring Kurt Russell) in how they turned a mild-mannered kid into a highly efficient killer and such a good one that he commits xenocide against the buggers… but he thought that he was playing a game, a really good simulation that was supposed to prepare him to command Earth’s fleet in the coming attack.

I couldn’t stop reading it.  While checking out the author’s official page, I learned that Harrison Ford and a whole slew of Academy Award nominees and winners were picked to do the movie, due out 01 November 13 according to IMDB.com

I hope it’s as good as the book is…

So, I've been spanked, hard! I have spanked myself hard, I have spanked others even harder! I'm now heading for a different road, one that still includes all the best bits of me, all the naughty bits, all the hot steamy bits, and plenty of spanking still to be had! But this time I'm creating characters to play out my delightful erotic fantasies, I hope you enjoy the new ride as much as the previous one...
